Description

Atlantic Canada’s powerhouse group Còig, one of todays most exciting North American Celtic groups, will play an intimate family ceilidh concert in downtown Victoria.

With a fiery Celtic style as its musical core, Còig offers a fresh and exhilarating mix of traditional tunes, lively instrumentals and contemporary songs performed on over a dozen instruments (vocals, fiddles, guitar, banjo, piano, mandolin, viola, bouzouki, whistles, and more) in a lot of non-traditional ways.

Còig's like no other, thanks to the unique mix of four superb talents. Featuring the fiddling and step-dancing duo of Chrissy Crowley and Rachel Davis, Maggie MacDonald on piano, and the musical musings of multi-instrumentalist Darren McMullen, the award-winning quartet are an unparalleled music force.

Còig’s latest album, “Ashlar” (released March 2019) is full of surprises and flows from lively instrumental sets to tender traditional ballads to fabulous covers, everything Còig is known for and then some. With a growing list of credits, “Ashlar” debuted at #1 on the World iTunes chart and has been recognized with a 2020 Canadian Folk Music Award (Traditional singer, Rachel Davis), East Coast Music Award and Music Nova Scotia Award nomination for Roots Traditional Recording of the Year.

Còig have collected a mantle of awards and nominations for their catalogue of recordings, “Carols Too” (2019), ”Rove” (2017), “Carols” (2016) and “Five” (2014) including a Canadian Folk Music Award, a JUNO nomination and multiple East Coast Music Awards and Music Nova Scotia Awards. The best in trad music, in a non-traditional way. That's Còig.

Guest BC CeltFest alum musical artists will do a pre-show and accompany Còig, including young members of the Glengarry School of Highland & Celtic Step Dance who are raising funds to send some of their Highland dancers to the Canadian Championships this July in Kamloops.

Refreshments Available for purchase. Bar for Adults.

Doors: 5:30 pm Pre-entertainment & Concert Following: 6:00 pm
